25 years ago in an inappropriate setting, which produced some amusement and good stories but no wisdom.

Anybody have experience with Salvia? How does it compare, as a vehicle for transcendent insight? I suspect it won't remain legal for much longer.

I've dabbled with Sally quite a few times and grew my own for a while (I even had it flower and got seeds). She speaks volumes in a very short time. For me, she really weaves you into the fabric of time showing a LOT of what's behind the curtain. But she's intense and by no means is she for everybody. Be sure you have a friend around to make sure you don't do anything stupid like roll across the room and hurt yourself. I learned more from her in a few sessions than I did with El Cid in a year. But in the long run, 'cid is friendlier. With Sally, think of it as cramming for a test, getting a bunch of info at once. If you don't panic, the gained information can last you the rest of your life. I've not taken her in a couple of years but the knowledge is still at hand.

To answer the question, with acid it was Oct 2006

I've never tried salvia, but its active ingredient acts on a completely different receptor in the brain than LSD-like hallucinogens do (incl. mescalin, psilocybin, DMT, etc.)--so I wouldn't expect the experience to be too similar.

Far from it on the salvia, you do not even know tht you took it and where you where 10 seconds ago and what you are and where you are going and why things that used to be 3 dimensions are not anymore.

I experimented once with salvia about a year ago.I found the trip to be very intense, yet very short lived.I guess you could say it was similar to N2O in that respect.
Given the opportunity, I would probably try it again.
This video sheds some light on it was like.

Never. No drugs - how can you fight Conservatives/Republicans stoned? Perhaps it's the British working-class puritanical streak.
I enjoy northern rhone wine by the bottle,though. And a good (non-peaty} malt. (Any good recommendations, RobTW?)

i'm new to this posting business. being english working class i've found that drugs effectively eliminate any streaks of puritanism i might have been unconsciously conditioned by. as for fighting conservatives/republicans, the weed induces ahimsa (non-violence) in a lot of people. alcohol is a different trip interesting but different . and dont forget the conservatives/republicans have all the money and usually the best drugs. i seem to recall jerry being asked in '70/71 , how he stayed high all the time, 'I smoke a lot of dope.' ah well time to skin up. that typing can be tiring.

Four weeks ago with my best friend at the Pro Football Hall of Fame game (Redskins vs Colts). Though it was fun tailgating with a large group of guys (though we were the only two in the enlightened state of mind), Canton for the Hall of Fame game isn't quite the setting I prefer. I must say, I did feel quite like Hunter S in Fear and Loathing. My friend (best football player I ever played with while in college - 2 time All America Defensive End who would have been in the NFL if not for a career ending knee injury his senior year). We were fortunate enough to be invited to a VIP party put on by Miller Light with all the free food (I couldn't eat in my state though) and drinks (I did enjoy this aspect). My friend put the fear of God into Leroy Kelly, Hall of Fame running back and I to this day swear the tent was leaning down hill and would not visit the far side of the tent (fortunately the bar was on the uphill side and served as an anchor). Having in depth conversation with the plethora NFL luminaries on acid seemed to make sense at the time, but I'm sure Gary Zimmerman (whose best friend is a Dead Head, very cool)wasn't really into my rabblings about why musical stylings of the modern country music singer are a sign of the softening of America (though he was polite about the whole thing).

All in all, I find at the age of 40 that the occasional trip is very healing mentally. A twelve hour vacation of sorts that I find re-charges me and is still fun, fun, fun.
LSD is simply a tool to expand ones mind after all.

As long as I can find them, I plan to enjoy the sacrament for many years to come albeit not at the "popping tabs like Pez" pace of my twenties.

I've dosed scores of times but NEVER outside the safe confnes of a Grateful Dead show. It was the only place I felt secure enough in.

I can't imagine dosing at a footbal game. Probably totally freak me out.I'd be the naked guy the security would be chasing around the field in the third quarter.

Last time for me would be my last show, 7/2/89.Same for weed.

what a question and since it's you asking...was right after my first (2 year) college grad. may 96, really funny story to go along with it.

* I was out all night at a house party in PA with all my friends, don't ask why, but i was (sniff sniff) Ritalin - weird all my friends were into it, so i tried and was wired all night. did not sleep a wink and went to the college grad ceremony. after that, my best friend showed up at my house with a bag of trips (are for kids). we were chillin in my room listening to THE DEAD, when we looked on my bed and my dog (who just turned 14 last month -- named COAL) had the bag of trips in his mouth, just kinda showing off what he had -- we started laughing so hard and said, "time to trip now i guess." Coal never ate any (that time) and we stood up all night again trippin in the woods, listening to Jerry and the Boys.

I ate mushrooms 2 more times after that - 10.96 (we were on the beach outside my pad in San Diego and this Japenese girl came up to us looking for directions -- get this, her name was MOMMY -- we could not stop laughing after she left) and 6.98 (we went to see Social Distortion at UCSD -- it was rockin)

Nice tread, like to see where this one is going once the stoners wake (and bake) up. Yeah, I'm talking about you...

PS. I think I'm seein trials.

**** Let's get a top 5 names list going:

Double Dipped Sunshine
Felix The Cat
Bart Simpsons
Sunshine Daydreams
Orange Surprise

That was the last time I dosed too, it was my last show and my 36th Birthday.

A good show but a sad memory now that He's Gone!

My backstage pass said it all, "Paid in Full" and so there was no mo.

Ten months ago, vitamin L25 with O-Acetylpsilocin sprinkled on top, alternately playing in the snow and exploring closed-eye space indoors. It'll be another good couple of years still before I blow those doors off the hinges again, though it is nice to keep the door slightly ajar via sitting (zazen/meditation).

Strat-I'm sure we had this conversation before, but I was there with a couple buddys from college. We had tix for Fri and Sat, we also had over an oz. of blow. We made it to Friday's show, stayed up all night doing that and drinking for free at the casinos, but by the time we had to drive out to Sam Boyd in the 300 degree heat, none of us felt we could command our vehicle.Missed Sat nights show altogether.Gave out tix to the bartneder at the pool bar and he hooked up some of his friends to the show. So while not actually dosed, pretty damn close. Other than that was the last show in college, 3/13/81 Utica. That show involved nearly half our frat house and 3 bottles of liquid. Remeber just squeezing little pools into each others palms. That was an evening of legends once we all made it back to the house, some as late as 4 am. There was a big welcome home party waiting for us as each carload crawled back after the two hour ride only to hear about the harrowing journey through the snow. One car went off the road and they woke the farmer up who owned the house neadby and he pulled them out with his tractor. and so on.

Summer '03 Dead and Dylan, Cincinatti OH.
This summer went to a tie-dye campout. Was handing out the (boomer) tea, and decided that since Zoey was already in deep slumber, that maybe it was ok to sip some, and sip some, and finally full-on drink some. Had a great time. Still have a sweet-tart that a friend handed to me at the liquor store four years ago. Wrapped in foil in the freezer - don't know when (if) that will ever come out. Maybe in 2020.

One path from these sorts of thought end up at "Cracks in the Great Wall: UFOs and Traditional Metaphysics" by Charles Upton.

He talks about one of the signs of the End Times being the erosion of the energy barrier or 'Great Wall' between the material plane and the world of subtle realities. He says that going beyond thresholds needs care, and thinks that lack of care is one reason why our world is now being invaded by 'infra-psychic forces' of a terribly destructive nature.

Now back to the regularly scheduled program.
